Gook
An unlikely friendship develops in 1992 Los Angeles
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  September 29, 2017, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The low-budget film’s black-and-white cinematography (by Ante Cheng) helps it maintain the illusion of being set in an earlier time period, which is now 25 years in the past. Although characters’ pagers light up with messages saying things like, “Free stuff on South Central,” Gook takes place in a nook beyond the edges of downtown L.A., where smoke plumes can be seen in the distance but a more immediate threat is the inbred racism in this mixed community of blacks and Latinos that shares turf with the area’s predominantly Korean shopkeepers...."

Tres Proyectos Latinos & Young Latin Artists: Vibrant Dialogue
Arts Review  July 4, 1997
"...Personally, I am not always engaged by the resulting politically correct dialogue with its seemingly endless variations, but the combined force of Mexic-Arte's exhibition "Young Latino Artists" and AMOA's "Tres Proyectos Latinos" at Laguna Gloria has grabbed my attention and won't let go. Press releases from both institutions arrived in the same envelope, physical evidence that the dynamics between Mexic-Arte and AMOA have changed substantially since the old days..."

Years of the Dead
The Mexico of now, David Garza writes, is not held only within the borders of Mexico itself. It has spread northward, re-entered its old space, in a sense. For so many of the Mexicans, displaced but still infatuated with the idea of spirit and ghost, the nation itself is a ghost in the back of the head.

Resurrection Blvd. may not be the perfect show about the Latino experience, but it's a step in the right direction; also, Sex and the City's third season disappoints.

"...All right, I know I'm supposed to be down with seeing more Latinos on television and film, and I am -- when there's something to be down with.

The cultural shorthand offends by implying that all Latinos are alike..."

Borderline Bush
Bordertown Blues
News Story  May 27, 1999, by Erica C. Barnett
"...Domingo Garcia says the explanation for Bush's appeal to Latino voters is simple: "He speaks Spanish, he's knowledgeable on issues of concern to the Latino community, and it's the first time we've seen a Republican be moderate on those issues." And, although Bush's appointments have fallen far short of reflecting the true complexion of Texas' population (the governor has appointed one-third fewer Latinos to state boards and commissions than did his predecessor, Ann Richards), he has been widely lauded for appointing Latinos to several high-profile positions, including two successive secretaries of state and one Supreme Court justice...."

Higher Ed Funding: Congress comes to ACC
Looking at new methods to distribute federal education funds earmarked for historically black- and Hispanic-serving colleges and universities, U.S. Rep. Rubén Hinojosa hosts hearing on ACC Eastview campus
News Story  June 8, 2007, by Kimberly Reeves
"...Yet ACC – not the University of Texas – is the growing gateway to higher education for minority students in Austin-area school districts. Statistics show that more than half of the Latinos who go on to higher education attend community colleges, and community colleges constitute more than half of those institutions classified as "Hispanic serving." As the Top 10% Rule squeezes more local kids out of UT – and the number of Latinos in local school districts grows – ACC will be the choice for many of these students...."

Point Austin: Supreme Confusion
The Supreme Court ratifies the Texas GOP majority with a shrug
News Column  July 7, 2006, by Michael King
"...It was the Voting Rights Act that enabled the Supreme Court to come to the inescapable legal conclusion that the Tom DeLay-redrawn Congressional District 23, designated fiefdom of Republican Rep. Henry Bonilla, reflects a "troubling blend of politics and race – and the resulting vote dilution of a group [Latino voters] that was beginning to achieve [the VRA's] goal of overcoming prior electoral discrimination." That is, faced with Bonilla's inevitable defeat because roughly 92% of Latinos refused to vote for him, DeLay's map drafters redesigned his district to eliminate roughly 100,000 Latino voters, while leaving just enough "voting-age" Latinos (i.e., including noncitizens) to maintain the illusion of a majority-minority district..."
